(b) 29 (Pain/Longing) The Burning Sun - Poem by Renu Rakheja a.k.a Tranquil Ocean

The nightsky was his desire
All encompassing, all consuming
His body broke into beaded sweat
Like stars plucked from the sky
He burned, he seethed
He goddamn loved her
His love was pure
Probably the only pure emotion he had ever felt
He wanted to run away with her and make a new universe
Where it would be only him and her
Where they would make sweet music
He wanted to possess her
She was his obsession
Damn! !
Why couldnt he have her?
She remained elusive

She was the Moon
And he was the Sun
As the Sun showed his searing burning passion
The Moon gently disappeared

    This goes beyond any reads I have had the pleasure to read.....
    So strong from start to finish, never skipping a beat,
    and the punch ending is just so bang on....
    very nicly done
